Thanks everyone. The time taken and the info is appreciated. I’ve ordered a 120mm One Up post and lever. (The extra 20mm was a deciding factor.) I’ll report back.

I serviced the Giant dropper, but it’s no better - I think the actuator is a little corroded. Maybe needs a new air cartridge. Planning a new post. My frame is a little restrictive for length of post installed. I can only get 100mm drop with the original ... more »

I’m going through a similar phase. I’ve found Moto X googles great, except for long slow climbs. After a face plant cut my nose badly with my Rudy Projects, I bought a Fox Pro frame full face. Feel a little safer wearing the sunnies with that, but have ... more »

Like my, what seemed like, well padded Rudy Project glasses, I’d be concerned about many of the industrial eye protection options (Which I’ve worn many times) Cutting into my nose with a face plant type impact. The glasses caused significant nose damage ... more »

Is it obvious how to service it? Can I adjust the air pressure? (No - replacement air cartridges available.) (I’ll google it) - googled - https://youtu.be/3Dy6lukV8Bc I’d like to do that. I think I’ll fit a One Up lever and new cable and see how I like ... more »

Thanks to my incredible MTB coach - I have started using my dropper post “as much as my gears” This has highlighted the budget nature of my “Giant Brand” post on the bike I ride half the time. The bike I ride for the other half of my life came with a ... more »

Although many people don’t seem to like them, I’m a big fan of Crank Bros “Egg Beaters”. They release like lightening once the technique has become second nature. “Lead with the heal” - twist - the same as all clipless pedals. They never jam, being a

More good tips - thanks. I have been liking the goggles already. Sweat has been a problem, and as Falcon mentioned, the googles are far less prone to “sweat issues” (Water on the inside of the lens) so far. Smile while riding folks!!

Wow - I’m rating my face plant 4/10 based on your scale!! Thanks for the info. I’m finding the MX goggles and the Fox full face ok, so far. The goggles are a bit hot when stopped, or going slow - I’ll look at the Smith and POC offerings. I’ve been stopping ... more »

And automobiles being driven by someone updating their Facebook status is going to kill more cyclists than all the wild animals combined. That’s one reason we ride off road. That, and the fun!!

Riding in Australia, I try and keep snakes out of my mind, but carry a bandage and a mobile phone. The current thinking is: If you don’t move after being bitten, the venom doesn’t move and you have almost unlimited time to get to universal antivenin. ... more »

I bought a Fox ProFrame based on the review and the fact the LBS had one to try on. Seems good after one ride, and working out to poke the drink tube through the front, not under.

Thanks for the replies. Luckily the wound was less severe than suspected, and didn’t require stitches. In the name of “getting back on the horse” I rode yesterday. Wearing my MX goggles. (Nice and soft on the wound, and unlikely to contribute in the ... more »

I’m in ED waiting on stitches (or glue, apparently.) A minor face plant has caused my Rudy Project glasses to deeply lacerate my nose. Not a great outcome for expensive glasses designed for cycling. It probably helps explain the MX goggles I see being

Used mine for the first time yesterday. Seems great. (Also have a Hero 3 - old, and a “Fusion” - amazing 360 deg!) 1080p 50fps - will play with settings. https://vimeo.com/312065732
